SHAMEFUL: Global Biotech Cartel gangs up on Africa Press urging them to promote GMO.

VibeGhana, February 7, 2013

SHAMEFUL: AFRICAN LEADERS URGED TO HARNESS BENEFITS OF BIOTECHNOLOGY TO ADDRESS FOOD SECURITY

The Open Forum on Agricultural Biotechnology has (OFAB) urged Africa leaders and other relevant institutions to harness the benefits of biotechnologies to UNDER THE GUISE OF promoting food security challenges on the continent...

 SUMMARY: "The media should therefore act as agents of change by working closely with scientists and policy makers to define an African agenda for biotechnology," [Mr. Daniel Otunge, Coordinator of Open Forum on Agricultural Biotechnology, a programme of the African Agricultural Technology Foundation] said and pointed out that if that was not done, the continent would forever be dependent on food aid from countries that had adopted innovative agricultural technologies to improve food production. Mr. Otunge tasked the Ghanaian media to frame the biotechnology debate in a manner that would improve public negative perceptions toward the technology, citing genetically modified crops as an example."

Rice is a staple diet of many of cultures, eaten every meal, every day, and often the only food in impoverished cultures. This "Golden GM Rice" creates a great danger of Vitamin A overdose causing resulting health issues as problematic as the original deficiency. There is no way to control how much Vitamin A will be ingested daily and accumulated in the body over a period of years.

With the seed crop industry (including conventional as well as GMO crops) reaping $146.3 million a year in sales resulting from its activities in Hawai'i, the out-of-state pesticide and GMO firms Syngenta, Monsanto, DuPont Pioneer, Dow Chemical, BASF, and Bayer CropScience have brought substantial sums of corporate cash into the state's relatively small political arena. http://www.prwatch.org/news/2014/06/12506/pesticide-and-gmo-corporations-spend-big-hawaii

 -▶ THE GMO AUTHORITY:  WHO SHOULD REGULATE HAWAII'S GMO AND PESTICIDE USE?  -- The question of whether or not counties have the authority to regulate pesticide use and genetically engineered crops was at the center of a federal court hearing on Wednesday challenging Kauai County’s new ordinance imposing buffer zones and disclosure requirements on biotechnology firms.
    Global seed companies Syngenta, DuPont Pioneer, Agrigenetics and BASF are seeking a permanent injunction against Kauai Ordinance 960, which prohibits pesticide spraying near schools and hospitals; requires disclosure of restricted pesticide use about certain levels; and mandates disclosure of the cultivation of genetically engineered seeds. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/24/gmo-pesticide-regulation-

JUDGE INVALIDATES PARTIAL BAN ON GMOs in Hawaii County, Big Island. A federal judge has invalidated Hawaii County’s partial ban on growing genetically engineered crops, dealing another blow to Hawaii’s growing movement against genetically modified organisms. Judge Barry Kurren ruled Wednesday that Ordinance 13-121 is invalid because it is fully preempted by state law and partially preempted by federal law.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqaaB6NE1TI&feature=youtu.be

 

(NaturalNews) During his 2008 campaign for president, Barack Obama transmitted signals that he understood the GMO issue. Several key anti-GMO activists were impressed. They thought Obama, once in the White House, would listen to their concerns and act on them.

These activists weren't just reading tea leaves. On the campaign trail, Obama said: "Let folks know when their food is genetically modified, because Americans have a right to know what they're buying."

December 19, 2012 - Global Research

Because of the power vested in the EU Commission in Brussels, Belgium, with command over a space encompassing 27 nations with more than 500 million citizens and the largest nominal world gross domestic product (GDP) of 18 trillion US dollars, it’s perhaps no surprise in this era of moral promiscuity that powerful private lobby groups such as the tobacco industry, the drug lobby, the agribusiness lobby and countless others spend enormous sums of money and other favors—legal and sometimes illegal—to influence policy decisions of the EU Commission.

This revolving door of corrupt ties between powerful private industry lobby groups and the EU Commission was in full view recently with the ruling of the European Food Safety Administration (EFSA) trying to discredit serious scientific tests about the deadly effects of a variety of Monsanto GMO corn....

Africa – Calling for a GMO-Free Continent -

Johannesburg, Nov 23, 2012 Inter Press Service

The African Centre for Biosafety has called for South Africa and Africa to ban the cultivation, import and export of all genetically modified maize.

The organisation’s coordinator Nnimmo Bassey told IPS that GMOs do not deliver on the promises made by the biotechnology industry. He argued that hunger in Africa is used as an excuse to contaminate and erode genetic diversity on the continent.... http://www.ipsnews.net/2012/11/africa-calling-for-a-gmo-free-continent/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

▶ THE RABID TACTICS OF THE BIOTECH INDUSTRY TO GAIN CONTROL OF GHANA'S FOOD SYSTEM Whose interests does Prof. Alhassan represent? Prof. Alhassan was been quoted as dismissing anti-GMO groups because, according to him, they allegedly do not have any scientific proof or knowledge to offer when it comes GMO technology. But he is wrong.

Ghanaian farmers need to abhor and reject scientists laden with conflicts of interest. Monsanto and Syngenta are particularly greedy to get their hands on Ghana’s agriculture and control the seed market here.Professor Alhassan is attempting to control the information farmers and the public see and hear just like the industry he represents....

The Corporate 'Philanthrocapitalists' Takeover of African and Global Food Security

The Corporate 'Philanthrocapitalists' Takeover of African and Global Food Security | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

Pambazuka -Voices for Freedom and Justice in Africa

HOW COMPANIES FRAME ISSUES OF FOOD AND GLOBAL HUNGER FOR THEIR OWN SELF-INTEREST AND BOTTOMLINE PROFITS

There is a new, but deceptive, foreign drive to end hunger in Africa through large-scale agribusiness. Yet helping poor households in rural Africa feed themselves in an affordable manner means introducing low-cost, sustainable enhancements to farming.

     Corporate interests have hijacked African food and agricultural policy. They are behind a new green revolution for the continent that is pushing a capital-intensive approach with farms, supply chains and expanding international markets. This approach is a step backward to concepts of food security prevalent in the 1960s and 1970s. As a result, Africans will remain hungry.

     History is riddled with examples of the poor dying of hunger when food was plentiful. Classic amongst these is the famine which wracked the West African Sahel during the early 1970s. While people were dying of hunger in Senegal, Mali and Niger, peanuts — a key sauce ingredient and source of protein across the region — were being exported to Europe....

    ...The rise of philanthrocapitalism in the US, where former and current business leaders, through the strength of their foundations, have increasingly come to influence the shape and direction of US international development programmes. Central to the philanthrocapitalist worldview is a belief that private enterprise is the fundamental agent of progressive change and that business acumen trumps other forms of expertise... http://www.pambazuka.org/en/category/features/85291

THE NEW SCRAMBLE FOR AFRICA : INTERACTIVE INFOGRAPHIC

Around the early 1900s the European colonial powers built railways to connect the interior of Africa to the ports. They used this infrastructure to export food and minerals out of Africa to feed the industrial revolution in Europe. Over a hundred years later it’s happening all over again. Take a look at our latest infographic to see how.

Poachers kill an elephant matriarch and her family in Kenya, prompting a call for help.

November 11, 2012 - New York Times

On October 27, Nick Brandt, a photographer and conservationist, photographed Qumquat, one of the best known matriarchs in the elephant population around Kenya’s Amboseli National Park, walking with two daughters, their young and other kin.

One day later, the old female and nearly all of the other elephants in this group were found slaughtered. Their faces had been hacked off by the poachers to be sure they gleaned every ounce of ivory from the tusks. (Click here for photographs of the result – not for the squeamish.)... http://dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/11/11/africas-ivory-driven-elephant-slaughter-continues-a-family-falls/?partner=rss&emc=rss

▶ THE RABID TACTICS OF THE BIOTECH INDUSTRY TO GAIN CONTROL OF GHANA'S FOOD SYSTEM Whose interests does Prof. Alhassan represent? Prof. Alhassan was been quoted as dismissing anti-GMO groups because, according to him, they allegedly do not have any scientific proof or knowledge to offer when it comes GMO technology. But he is wrong.

Ghanaian farmers need to abhor and reject scientists laden with conflicts of interest. Monsanto and Syngenta are particularly greedy to get their hands on Ghana’s agriculture and control the seed market here.Professor Alhassan is attempting to control the information farmers and the public see and hear just like the industry he represents....

“Today, large numbers of scientists are in the employ of Big Pharma, Big Ag, and all kinds of corporations with anti-environmental and anti-social justice agendas.”(2)... Professor Alhassan is a key employee of Big Ag, and has been for his entire career....

change global, act local.

Arun Shrivastava's curator insight, February 12, 2013 1:24 AM

A number of vital summary here. It is in your interest that you understand the key issues and get to the bottom of what is going on. AND TAKE ACTION.

 

The plan is to control food in such a manner that accessibility to food no more remains your right. That fundamental right has been undermined already; all that remains is a formal announcement. In India, UPA-II under Man Mohan Singh is directly responsible for this situation. That's why I have been consistently writing that this Government should be charged with treason.

 

Sepp Hasslberger's curator insight, February 12, 2013 5:54 AM

This is a hugely important issue.

 

The outcome of the struggle between commercial and genetically modified seeds on the one hand and the age-old tradition of farmers saving their own seed and exchanging with neighbors on the other concerns us all. 

 

Our future food security depends utterly on the second option winning over the first.

THE GLOBAL CONTROL OF FOOD, COUNTRIES AND POPULATIONS

When rich companies with politically-connected lobbyists and seats on government-appointed bodies bend policies for their own ends, we are in serious trouble. In the US, many senior figures from the Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) industry have moved with ease to take up positions with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In 1998, senior Monsanto figure Phil Angell stated in the New York Times Magazine that Monsanto should not have to vouch for the safety of biotech food and that its interest is in selling as much of it as possible, while assuring its safety is the FDA’s job.
The revolving door between top figures at Monsanto and positions at the FDA, however, makes it very difficult to see just how the safety of biotech food can be independently guaranteed. As will be shown, this may well have important implications for India.... http://www.deccanherald.com/content/305542/enable_javascript.html

CASE FOR GM CROPS IS BECOMING 'STRONGER' SAYS NEW UK CHIEF SCIENTIST http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/earthnews/10005018/Case-for-GM-crops-is-becoming-stronger-says-chief-scientist.html

 

January 4, 2013 - The Guardian UK - John Vidal
UK GOVERNMENT'S ENTHUSIASM FOR GM NOT MATCHED IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES
Britain wants GM food to be grown commercially. After years of encouraging developing countries in Africa and elsewhere to grow them, but unable to allow its own farmers to do so, the environment secretary Owen Paterson has told a major conference that GM can secure countries' food supplies, is good for the public and can help limit climate change.
This is part of a massive PR drive by government, industry and free marketeers to shake off GM's "Frankenfood" image in Britain. But it will resonate deeply in sub-Saharan Africa, where the US and UK governments, industry bodies and seed companies have all been lobbying strongly for GM crops to be grown widely   http://www.guardian.co.uk/global-development/poverty-matters/2013/jan/04/uk-government-enthusiasm-gm

December 11, 2012 Humanosphere
The UN’s Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, Olivier de Schutter, examines the Obama Administration’s New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, a project aimed at boosting food production in the developing world. De Schutter notes that one example of the new initiative’s approach is to have Cargill launch a large-scale project on 40,000 acres of farmland in Mozambique — which may increase crop yields but also potentially displace many poor smallholder farmers.

Opportunities should not be mistaken for solutions.  "Investment" implies a financial return and often control.  "Philanthropy" and "Aid" should not be attached to profits but rather to empower and uplift populations into self independence in line with their regional ecosystems, cultural food and needs without coercion or hidden agendas by those acting as a trojan horse for big foreign business and corporate interests e.g. The Gates Foundation

How the spiritual connection to food was lost and how to reclaim it...

CONSCIOUS FOOD - NEW BOOK

Modern people can avoid being victims of biocultural evolution and the resultant entropy of declining global and personal health — and instead contribute to the movement toward mindful food choices and better world health, both physically and spiritually.

Reconnecting with edible nature focuses on how modern people can regain Spirit in food individually and collectively. The author provides a background on the emergence of agriculture and the declining connection with food as society evolved, particularly during times of war, and scrutinizes today's "conventional" farming that relies upon deadly toxins and unsustainable fossil fuels.... http://www.findhornpress.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=490
